Alabama Grocery Tax Repeal Likely Dead Again

Tools

By Alabama News Network

The effort to remove the state sales tax from groceries is likely dead for another year.

 

Republican Sen. Gerald Dial of Lineville got a Senate committee to approve his bill to phase out the 4 percent state tax, but he said it is unlikely he can pass it with only five meeting days remaining in the legislative session. Democratic Rep. John Knight of Montgomery introduced a bill to remove the tax, but it never got brought up for a vote.

 

Jim Carnes of the Alabama Arise organization that represents Alabama's poor says the grocery tax issue appears dead for this session of the Legislature.
